WIMMER FOR PRESIDENT [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 May 1971
WIMMER FOR PRESIDENT EDITORIAL One of the complaints heard around campus as SGA election-time draws near is: "If doesn't matter who I vote for...they're all the same!" On May 11, students at Capitol will be facing an election in which one presidential candidate does stand out above the rest, a candidate who is a little more involved...a little more concerned. That candidate is Terry Wimmer. Terry's involvement during his junior year at Capitol has reflected his concern about all aspects of student government. His weekly column in the CAPITOLIST has dealt with national government and student politics. He was a member of the student senate, and is currently on the Resident Student Council. He is also a member of Delta, Tau Kappa, the social science honor fraternity. One of Terry's most important qualifications is that he is a student leader with a conscience. His voice was heard during the Nittany Screw Affair, he has taken an active personal interest in the problems of food...
March On The library? [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 May 1971
March On The library? by Tom Ogden Depending upon your dedication to the fine art of research and/or the search for great reading pleasure, you may have run up against one of the biggest obstacles in our Super System that is Penn State-the Capitol Campus Library. Granted the library staff is doing the best they can with a frustrating system? What other campus can boast of having students fill out those funny little cards with our names, addresses, classification, number, shoe size...? I guess after a while it's not so bad, unless you have to take out a book. Our periodical room is also very impressive...looking. But have you tried to find a magazine lately? Apparently the Campus does not believe that anything happened in magazines prior to 1 965. The check-out system is broken into two parts, however: this signing for the books in blood, and then the Inquisition. Certainly briefcases must be checked, but when one merely walks in the room to return a book? Dedicated devils,...
SUPPOSE THEY GAVE A WAR... [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 May 1971
SUPPOSE THEY GAVE A WAR... BUT suppose they gave an ELECTION and nobody came! There are about 1,000 students on campus, let's say. O.K., scratch one-half of them who couldn't be bothered to vote even if it were to close down the University. (Don't laugh; it almost happened once!) That leaves five hundred dedicated (?) students. Subtract another half who forget which day the voting is. (Hey, Lee, what's that date again?) That leaves two hundred and fifty. Drop off one-half who never find the room to vote, wherever it may be (the secret of the century, at the time of this writing), leaving a total of one-twenty-five who will eventually make it to the polls. Drop off that twenty-five for those smart alecks who write in "Spiro Agnew," "Mr. Provost," "Rock-Picker" or the like; and we are left with one hundred students who will vote. Speaking from a mouth of experience (ahem) last year's S.G.A. President at the Berks Campus, P.S.U., won by a clear plu rarity of seventeen whole vot...

Letters-V The Editor: [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 May 1971
Letters-V The Editor: Dear College Editor: The most important anti-war offensive ever attempted is being organized for the end of April and the first week in May. For the first time in American history, the anti-war movement is attempting to use the force of massive, non-violent action to confront the power of the war-maker& Our plans call for disruption of governmental operations in Washington, D.C. and a national moratorium. Unfortunately, the national media has blacked out information on this offensive and distorted the rest. Our only hope is that you can convey to students on your campus the importance of what we have planned. Many of the people who came to Washington for the peace march April 24 have remained behind to begin an intensive People's Lobby. We are urging government workers to join us in our actions the first week in May, to strike against the government and protest the war. This coming weekend, May 1st and 2nd, there will be a massive assembly in Wa...
PEACE VS. PATIENCE [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 May 1971
PEACE VS. PATIENCE by Roger L. Hawkins I am sure there was no doubt in anyone's mind by the tremendous turnout to the Peace March on April 24, that the American people are sick and tired of the Vietnam war. They are sick of the ugliness that has been brought on by it. The price of peace to the American people is by no means an unattainable goal. Bring the troops home now, try to save lives instead of killing more. These are prevalent cries today. For the American people have had to pay quite heavily for this war. Americans have had to suffer such deficits as: unemployment, inflation, poor housing, urban blight, pollution, personal exploitation and rising taxes. It is no wonder that people are boiling over. While the government can spend billions of dollars in Vietnam, the domestic problems reach an all-time high. The government fails to listen. It fails to reach a compromise with it's own people. America has grown impatient because its government has stopped listening. Patie...
As The Association Turns [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 May 1971
As The Association Turns by Missy Rotondaro Let me begin by taking you to "SGA" and meeting our little family. We start off with President Lee Levan, bright, young, honest, and hardworking. Next Vice-President Chandler Wolf, dedicated and ambitious. Our Recording Secretary is Sue Ferrence and our Treasurer is Lucian Cross. Both are willing to try. And here come our Senior Senators, Amy Neuman, Eric Murray, Bill Ducassoux, Kathy Wilson, Bernie Schonbach, John Fanelly, Steve Forman, and Chips Frank. It starts off a fine, well meaning family. But one day Treasurer Lucian Cross resigns and the race is on. Lucian is replaced by Patty Patterson. "Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive." Election time and we have some new members in our little family. Newly elected Junior Senators are Terry Wimmer, Vicki Ward, Ed Miceli, Neil Madonick, Tom Black, Frank Dulisse, Lenny Thompson and Steve Wesley. Unusual things begin to happen. We start loosing people, no one...
The Right To Editorial Endorsement [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 May 1971
The Right To Editorial Endorsement Few will argue that the rights and responsibilities of any communications medium are complex. The debate arises when attempts are made to define them. With the elections for Student Government Offices at hand, the position of THE CAPITOLIST should be reiterated. First and foremost is the duty to urge all students to take every opportunity to become informed on the candidates' platforms. It may be a hackneyed statement, but it still holds that unless you are aware of "the issues" and express your opinion through voting, you have no right to bitch about what is wrong. It is too convenient to say that one vote won't make any difference, or to rationalize that "they're all alike anyway." Maybe just this once, there are a few sincere individuals who have the students' interests in mind. Maybe a greater concern and involvement by the student population will force the office seekers to keep those interests in mind, even after the elections. In recog...
OSCAR MUCUS [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 May 1971
OSCAR MUCUS by Lee Nell As I approached Oscar Douglas for this interview, he was reading through the SGA constitution. His running mate, regretfully, was student teaching and could not be reached. Oscar agreed to tell me about his platform and about Pat, and notes that their platform, in final form, will be presented to the students very soon. This then is the background, platform and goals of Oscar Douglas and Pat Williams. Pat, a native of McKeesport, Pa. attended Allegheny County Community College, South Campus, where she held student offices before coming to Capitol. She is a cheerleader and a member of the Black Student Union here. In addition to her pursuit of a degree in Elementary Education, Pat is a member of the Social Committee and a Resident Student Council member. Mr. Douglas, who hails from Harrisburg, attended HACC where he was Vice-President of Alpha Beta Omega fraternity. He was a forward on the basketball team here and is a member of the Black Student Union...
MEET THE CANDIDATES. TERRY WIMMER [Newspaper Article] — The Capitolist — 5 May 1971
MEET THE CANDIDATES. TERRY WIMMER student center and the auditorium or to construct new building facilities. Commenting about the platform and candidacy, Oscar summed up with, "We feel that our platform reflects many of the problems on campus that need immediate attention. The social life should be expanded, the mini-bus can be provided, the food problem and the decoration problem in the dorms must be corrected and the snow will be removed if we are elected. The SGA should be more receptive to student needs and should work harder for the students. If we are elected, our aim will be to fulfill that goal. Our platform points such as the steering committee and the distribution of the SGA minutes indicate that the SGA, with our leadership, will be a more student-oriented organization. Through working with the students, we can enhance student life and Capitol's image in the community. Interviewer, Tom Hagan First of all, why are you running for President of the S.G.A.? I'm terrib...
